BACKGROUND Cerebral autoregulation is important to maintain a constant perfusion in the face of changes in blood pressure. It is reported to be impaired in pathologic states, including hypertension, cerebral infarction, and head injury. However, it is not clear whether cerebral autoregulation is impaired in resuscitated patients after cardiac arrest. METHODS Cerebral autoregulation in comatose patients after cardiac arrest was assessed by using an indirect method of cerebral blood flow (CBF… CONTINUE READING
